A-SPAN will hold its fourth Coming Home Breakfast on the first floor of the NRECA Building on Friday, April 7. Registration begins at 7:30 a.m. with the program and breakfast to follow from 8-9 a.m. Keynote speaker is Pinkie Mayfield, vice president for corporate affairs of Graham Holdings Company.
Funds raised at the Coming Home Breakfast help fund A-SPAN’s expanded health care services for some of Arlington’s most vulnerable including street medical outreach, the nurse practitioner, medical respite in the Homeless Services Center, prescription drugs and follow up medical care.
A-SPAN’s mission is to secure permanent housing and provide life-sustaining services for Arlington’s most vulnerable individuals through outreach and relationships. Their vision is to end homelessness in Arlington. Kathy Sibert, president and CEO of A-SPAN, said, “Housing is like healthcare. We see dramatic improvements in people’s lives and health as we move individuals from homelessness to a home.”
